One of the first features that are immediately noticeable when one picks up the Honor View20 is the striking design. The front of the device is an expansive 6.4″ display with minimal bezels and a camera hole for the front camera. The back of the device features a glass panel with a shimmery effect underneath — this is easily one of the more striking phones in recent times, and a lot of consumers looking for a premium and attractive phone will definitely get floored by the effect on the back.
The Honor View20 also sports a 48MP rear camera with a secondary 3D ToF sensor. The main sensor can click pictures in AI Ultra Clarity mode, which takes several 48MP images in 5 seconds to create one really sharp 48MP photo. You can check out uncompressed, original resolution photos shot with and without AI Ultra Clarity in this Google Drive folder. The camera is also capable of utilizing features like AI Super Night Shot and real-time object recognition while video recording. The 3D ToF sensor is utilized for 3D mapping, which enables features like 3D body shaping.
